However, Penelope did not come inside, but very politely built an amazing web right outside our dining room window where we could observe closely but safely. (Safely just refers to how we felt , as I realize that she is harmless.) So we pulled out our field guides and our cameras, researched her on the internet, and dusted off our nature notebooks and sketched her.
May I introduce you to Penelope...
